How come degrees take so long, when they can be worked through in half of the time or less?
Say, for example, we have a highly intelligent and complex person. She/he is capable of highly accelerated learning and has a magnificent memory; has a spectacularly high "intelligence". What if he/she successfully self-studies a taxing degree like Physics or Engineering and is more than financially capable to carry out any practical features that may come with that? What if he/she self-studies such in a year or even substantially less, like a matter of months?
How exactly can such a person be recognised? Will universities allow him/her to simply take exams (all exams for the three years condensed into one period)? How can modern society accommodate such a highly intelligent individual?

It stays in your head if you spend a long time learning at a moderate pace, no matter how intelligent you may be. If someone that intelligent spends 3 years in full, they'll be much better off than if they spent a year.
A year or less for a 3-year degree is essentially a crash course and it's unlikely that you'd remember much of what you learnt. I doubt anyone would recognise it at all, employers are sceptical enough about 2 year degrees. Employers would still be insecure I imagineLast edited by ss_s95; 15-04-2013 at 01:44.
